Yesterday, Friday, January 20th, 2012 a lenendary songstress and biracial individual, Etta James passed away from leukemia at the age of 73. Recently Etta James had been battling cancer and was in the final stages of leukemia. Not one disease could kill the soul of such a remarkable legend. Etta James will live on throughout her raspy emotional blues filled voice.

One thing that I admired the most about Etta James was her attitude. I have never known one woman to be as fiesty as Etta James. James was well respected for her confidence and attitude. Her presence will remain with us all every time we hear her songs.

Another Angel has arrived in heaven. xo

Until next time . . .

Growing up I always felt like no one understood me or could to relate to me. I had one friend that I met that was also biracial but I felt that it was still something that separated us. In my opinion she identifies more with her black side, unlike me who feels like I am equally both black and white. It was hard not having someone who could share the same experiences with you. During the time I began blogging there weren’t many sites for biracials to share and speak out on their experience.

I reached an epiphany when I discovered Tiffany Jones youtube channel and wordpress blog, Mulatto Diaries. For once I found a stranger who shared the same experience and had some of the same feelings toward racial issues as me. Watching her videos made me feel like she was a friend to me. Someone who spoke up and spoke out to those biracial individuals with no voice. At the time and even now the resources available for biracials are limited. The biracial community is small. I encourage others to create a blog of sort to speak out to others. I remember feeling lonely as if no one shared the same Biracial experiences with me until finding Tiffany Jones vlogs & blog. The small and limited biracial community encouraged me to write because I wanted to leave footprints on the internet for young biracials that may feel lost and alone. I write down my opinions and personal experience so the lost ones can feel found.

Through personal growth I have come to realize that despite culture and races separating us we are more alike than ever. As different as we all may feel, we are alike. We are human. We eat, sleep, cry, smile and breathe all the same.

Until next time . . .

Since reading Heidi Durrow’s novel, “The Girl Who Fell From The Sky” last year I have felt so lost. The book grasped me by my heart and captivated me. It was dreadful when i came to read the last page, all because the journey Heidi Durrow took me on had came to an end. The novel was amazing and so beuatifully written. I often find myself rereading it over and over again. The story never gets old to me. You know when a book is good when you feel like you are the main character when reading.

I am looking forward to reading more books from Heidi Durrow. The story she told in “The Girl Who Fell From The Sky” was so rich and filled with reality. I can guarentee that you will fall in love with the story and the characters. If you have not already read her novel, I HIGHLY suggest that you get your hands on a copy.

Until next time. . .

Chemically treated hair can damage biracial hair. Speaking from experience a perm was accidently put into my hair and damaged my hair for about three year. When damage is caused from a perm you have to wait until the perm grows out which is a long transitioning process. A perm is not for fine or thin hair in my opinion. Keep in mind that chemically treated hair can cause hair damage such as split ends and can cause breakage.

Parents have gone with the approach of chemically treating their biracial child’s hair with the misconception of:  “this will make my morning easier”. Chemically treated hair does not make doing your child’s hair easier. In reality a perm requires more maintenance than wearing your hair natural.

If you approach is natural hair care I HIGHLY Recommend:  “Mixed Chicks Hair Products”.

Mixed Chicks Hair Products was created by two mixed chicks. Who better to know what biracial hair needs other than a mixed chick? I struggled for years bouncing from product to product trying to find one that works with my curly hair. I have been scammed into using Pantene,  Garnier Fructis, Tresemme, Herbal Essences and Sun silk, trying out all of their products for curly hair. None of their products left my hair healthy! They always dried my hair out, which is a big NO… NO!

Mixed Chicks has a line of products to meet every Biracial hair care need. I have been using their products for some years now consistently! My hair has grown more in the past few years than in my whole life. I use the Mixed chicks shampoo, deep conditioner, leave in conditioner and hair serum. If you want to go natural . . . go with Mixed Chicks as your hair products.

–TIPS– 

  1. Condition hair often concentrating on the ends.
  2. Limit shampooing to once every 7 days, simply concentrating on the scalp.
  3. ONLY comb curly hair when wet, using a wide tooth comb.
  4. Air Drying (Recommended)
  5. Use a leave in conditioner daily

BEWARE products containing:  Alcohol, Mineral Oil and Petroleum.
